There are two Mary Anne Barrett's on record as the spouse of Benjamin Barrett in Family Search a) Mary Anne born Brock 1797-1881 & Mary Anne Nightingale ( my record) 1799-1878. As their offspring were named Nightingale Barrett I say that I have the correct record & that other genealogists have chosen the incorrect Mary Anne. Both have marriage sources to Benj Barrett ( both in Norfolk in 1824 & 1820.)

Thanks Frank. That is what I thought . If the other answer was correct, it would have given me a headache to sort out the rest of the tree. Yours is, as far as I am concerned, the best answer but I wonder is anyone else will  choose the other spouse?
